It is easy. Do not worry about the locks, they are a piece of cake except the Mississippi
River locks. Even those are not so bad as long as you read the guide and active captain
are also easy and plentiful. Make sure you have a good anchoring
system. Debris is also no problem unless the rivers are flooding. Since you are going in spring this could be a concern.
If rivers flood the may close the locks for days at a time. Providing this does not happen, you should be able to make the trip in 10 days of hard motoring.
is >12 feet everywhere, so depth
is no problem in the channel. Marinas
docks are another story.
I find the ICW
relaxing and enjoyable. Have fun with it. Just call ahead to the locks to make sure they are open and watch the weather
